The latest update of the game gives you a third secret level. You simply need to have both of the others unlocked for it to be unlocked.

Future Level is easy. From the west end, go east. Up the mountain, drop down to where the east exit would be. Cold ball does not break like the glass ball. Continue to the screen where you got ball 2 . . . then bounce on the ice several screens further. The dragon is gone. The king teleports you back to the past. Go one or two screens east . . . there is the king, alive, and able to give you the power.

i need help in underwater lvl. what happens when you get all the 4 numbers lit up at 0 neer the begining. i have them lit up all to 0 now what?

I see some people are having save problems or are pissed about not being able to obtain certain balls. So...

If you need a certain ball...

Then open up the savegame.ini in your "Within A Deep Forest" folder, and type in the following things.

Pink Ball:

HasNormalBall=1

Speed Ball:

HasSpeedBall=1

Iron Ball:

HasIronBall=1

Glass Ball:

HasGlassBall=1

Yoga Ball:

HasYogaBall=1

Pathetic Ball:

HasPatheticBall=1

Rubber Ball:

HasJumpBall=1

Cold Ball:

HasFreezeBall=1

...and last but not least, the Flying Ball:

HasFreeBall=1

Can anyone tell me...

Nevermind, I got to the

Underwater Lab

and I have all the balls and the codes
Now my problem is getting the Pathetic Ball into the

Underwater Lab

I somehow mananged to do it before, and now I have lost the ability. Oh well, more time to consult the walkthroughs to find out how to get the Pathetic Ball to the pipe it need to go in.

What exactly is the main difference between 'normal' and 'hard'? Someone mentioned physics, but I find that for me, 'hard' is actually easier! Hmmm.

WOOHOO!!!! I beat the game!!! Take that, Dr. Cliche! Now, to find the secret code in the shadowlands I cannot find...and to input both codes to unlock the secret levels. Great game, along with Knytt. Nifflas sure knows how to think outside the box...and turn those thoughts into incredible games.

If I remember correctly, the 'yoga' ball is number 7, so go to the far left of the main area and use the yoga ball to bounce way up high till you get to that teleporter with the image of the iguana dude that gave you the yoga ball, activate the teleporter and go through it to arrive in hell...for lactose intolerant people :o

to get to the transporter that takes you to the lunar cheese factory use ball 4 then bounce above the teleporter and you will see a save point, here change to yoga ball then activate the transporter thingy and your done.

I beat the game, but I'm having serious trouble entering the 4 digit combinations. Specifiacally, the room with the lasers that turn on and off. By the way, I've noticed some weird stuff:
1. The glass ball doesn't break if it hits spikes. You know that really long jump at the right edge of pinewood heights? If you use the glass ball and land on the hedgehog's spikes, it doesn't break.
2.The easiest way to beat that hover thing(the level on top of the pillars)is to get the glass ball first, and use it for the right side and ball 2 for the left side. With the glass ball, you can not only go right through lasers but also the guns and multicolored floors/ceilings in that hover thing. In fact, I used the glass ball for about 3/4 of Ljus too.

This is a really old review, but I've been getting pretty into this game recently, and a search on Google Video shows this amazing 21 minute speed run. Thought you might want to check it out.

HAPPY DAPPY:
Use the green ball to jump to the highest platform you can reach. There is a save point. Then jump down with the Yoga Ball. When you hit the light below it should turn purlple. this will activiate the circle-thing. Just jump into it.
HOPE THIS HELPS

GETTING PAST THE CAT CREATURE:
One screen over from the (west?) savepoint there is a cat who sucks in anything to eat it.

Just jump down as the pathetic ball. He dosen't like the taste

HELP!!! I can't get the pathetic ball to jump high enough to get to the pit!!!

@Sarah This should help you:

You need to come from above. Go up the mountain with some lava pits and spikes (best with Yoga Ball). At the top and far right of the mountain, chage to pathetic Ball and go left, falling down a hole ( even more lava ). After that you can drop near the Sucking-Cat-Pit

Reply
Squiddy July 8, 2007 9:57 PM

Bouncy Ball:
According to my knowledge after finishing the game -

#1- the blue ball you start with

This ball is usually the easiest to control because it doesn't jump too high and it is of normal speed. It doesn't have any special abilities.

#2- Pink Ball

This ball jumps a bit higher than the blue ball, but is harder to control. It doesn't really have a special ability.

#3- Iron Ball

This ball has the heaviest weight, therefore it jumps lower. Winds don't have a lot of effect on iron ball, so to pass strong winds, it is usually better to choose iron ball.

#4- Speed Ball

This ball jumps higher than the pink ball, and has more speed. It doesn't have any special effect but the ability to jump high and move quickly.

#5- Glass Ball

This ball material is the lightest, but also the most fragile. You can destroy yourself if you fall from an altitude that's too high. The good thing about glass ball is that it is the only material capable of getting through laser beams without being destroyed.

#6- Yoga Ball

Yoga ball jumps higher than pink ball and slightly lower than speed ball. This ball is vital in order to open the portal to the Lunar Cheese Factory level.

#7- Pathetic Ball

This ball has the least power... It jumps the lowest. But surprisingly, this ball does have a use.

Remember the tiger that devours everything? Well, to get past the tiger you'll need this ball material.

#8- Rubber Ball

This ball jumps the highest among all the others. (well except for the Flying Ball which could fly even higher)

It can be used to reach the top of the sky in Harara Mountains, where you can discover the code to unlock one of the secret levels.

#9- Cold Ball

You need this ball in order to get to the time machine and go to the future. It is the only ball material that can survive low temperatures.

#0- Flying Ball

This ball can jump as high as the speed ball, and can fly to any altitude if you use the "↑" key.

somewhere on the screen is a picture of where to go. for example, the first time this happens with the red rectangle thing, on the opposite side of the screen, there is an identical blue box with a mirror of what you need to do.

Reply

Get all balls the easy cheating way:

If you've saved the game a least once you'll see that there is a file called "savegame.ini" in the root directory of the game. So lets make some changes :p
If you don't have all balls they'll won't mention it so to add them place this in the file:
HasPracticeBall=1
HasNormalBall=1
HasIronBall=1
HasSpeedBall=1
HasGlassBall=1
HasFreezeBall=1
HasFreeBall=1
HasPatheticBall=1
HasJumpBall=1
HasYogaBall=1
You can always delete the balls by just removing the line or turning the true value (1) into a false value (0)

Hey people, I'm stuck in Shadow Lands and don't get the cold ball. I guess I don't understand the description on top of this thread correctly.

It's not as hard as the reviewer says, if you pay attention to the physics. Only a couple of parts had me humming peaceful songs to keep from smashing my speakers into the monitor.

I just downloaded this game this weekend, I wished i would have gone outside, but it was a great game. I really enjoyed the world design, the puzzles, the progression, the gameplay. Good amount of difficulty without being impossible.

Reply

MaJ, I had a lot of trouble with this one too:

you have to touch the red light, so scare it in a way you know where it will go and chase it like mad. It will kill you, but you will be allowed to regenerate opn the pad to the lower right of that room.

JanW, I can help, but I'm not sure what you are talking about. Sounds like a room you don't actually get a ball in, but just need to escape out of. Do you remember what the bird says? What door do you go into to talk to that bird?

I found a big glitch, at least from a continuity perspective. So, the future level is cold because in the past you never stopped Dr.Cliche, right? Therefore, after you finish the game, i.e., disable the "world-freezing ice-bomb," the future should be sunny and just like the past. But if, after you win the game, you go back to the future, it's still icy. That disappointed me, I was hoping that the king would still be alive in this future, or that the big plant that eats you east of the king would be gone, but you can't get there because the free ball would die.

Reply

I really enjoyed this. The whole strategy of the different ball types was really, really fun. The game was really easy to pick up, and the difficulty curve was great. While I'm not saying it was by any means easy... It would have been nice if it was longer. Or if users could create levels like in Knytt Stories. Once you've finished it, there's really virtually nothing left to do. For a game this deep, it might be nice if there was something more. While I realise length isn't typically a characteristic of casual games, it just would have been nice.

But, silly little complaints aside: I. Loved. this. Game.

Ok, I may well be doing something wrong but I can't think what... I have all the balls and I have to get the tiger to eat me as the pathetic ball, I tried starting from the save point next to the menu entrance, but I couldn't jump high enough, then I tried going from the save point on the mountain above, but again I couldn't jump over the little ledge. It's really frustrating, the game has pitched the difficulty perfectly up to this point and suddenly I'm totally stuck right before the end! Help please!
